 33EMYBW 

33EMYBW is a Shanghai-based artist with a penchant for peculiar, unsettling sounds. Many of their self-released tracks, such as “EMSYGYDL”, feature spurts of alien timbres, distorted vocal samples, and light, lilting rhythms.

In 2017, 33EMYBW also shared a three-track release entitled MEDUSA. It opens with broken, club-oriented rhythms accompanied with peculiar vocal processing in “RANA”. The second track, “YAMA”, features driven, distorted percussion and experiments across the stereo field, whilst title track, “MEDUSA,” takes this fragmentation further, skipping nimbly across percussion and synth stabs. A dynamic artist working across various media, 33EMYBW has developed a distinct aesthetic rooted in a fascination with insects, aliens, and other creatures.

33EMYBW is a part of Shanghai-based band Duck Fight Goose, and also founded The Centaurs alongside GOOOOOSE. The Centaurs is a series of events in Shanghai promoting left-field electronic music as well as hosting workshops in music production, modular synthesis, and DIY software and hardware instruments.

制作人/视觉艺术家,现居上海。近年来活跃于上海勃兴的电子音乐场景中。她擅长从现代跳舞音乐、民族音乐及丰富的视觉阅读中汲取灵感,将多种混合的概念化元素提炼为极具个人风格的低音律动和令人惊艳的实验性声音设计。2015年,33在上海电子厂牌SVBKVLT发布了单曲《EMSYGYDL》,并正式开启其个人艺术项目。2017年她在北京大福唱片发表首张个人专辑《Medusa》,专辑同名单曲随即被评为当年阿比鹿音乐奖最佳电子单曲。 同年,她作为上海电子音乐的代表性人物参与英国iD杂志的视频拍摄。33EMYBW表演的足迹遍布各地,包括德国Sinotronics festiva 、美国SXSW festival、瑞士China Drifting festival、柏林CTM音乐节(Turmoil,2018)等。

除此之外,33还是国内著名实验电子乐队是鸭打鹅的核心成员,并曾参与上海多支重要独立乐队,包括33岛、波激小丝(BooJii)、Muscle Snog等。2018年,她在上海的SVBKVLT厂牌发布了全新专辑《Golem》, 并入选Bandcamp2018最佳电子乐专辑。

 GOOOOOSE 

GOOOOOSE is the side project of Han Han, front man of one of China’s most well-known experimental- rock/electronica band “Duck Fight Goose” and also owner of the experimental record label Miniless Recordings. His multi- instrumental approach of making music usually leads the audience into a place where ambient soundscape, heavily synthesized texture and syncopated rhythms find their harmony, yet still fighting with each other sometimes. Apart from making music, Han Han is also a visual artist and software developer. GOOOOOSE is more like a spiritual cave of Han Han, he currently lives in Shanghai. There are 5 Os.

Since 2012, Han Han started to perform in various venues in Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Estonia, France and United States, including Haus der Kulturen der Welt and CTM festival in Berlin, Cite De La Musique in Paris and SXSW festival in Austin. As a music producer/composer/Audio-Visual artist, he also participated several art projects since 2017, such as a full audio-visual live performance for Zhang Ding’sworkVortex, composingmusicpiecesfor Andrey Boleslavsky’s VR works at CAC art center, Designer Zhang Da (Boundless), Wang Hao Min (Zuczug, WHM)’s 2018 spring fashion show(original music for full show). He also produced indie band Late Trouble’s first album. In the same year, he released debut full length album “They” and received positive reviews from several places including Japanese media “Music Magazine”.

At the beginning of 2018, Han Han was invited to CTM festival in Berlin to perform. He will release several new EPs under D-force Beijing, NLS records from London/Hongkong and Ante-Rasa from Belgium. His artwork “THEY 2.0” was also exhibited in Goethe

Institute in Beijing 798 from September 1st to October 14th in 2018.

GOOOOOSE 是韩涵的个人音乐计划,他的身份还包括实验电子乐队鸭打鹅主创,独立厂牌 Miniless主理人,同时也是一位互动视觉和程序开发者。相比鸭打鹅的丰富层次与庞大叙事架构,GOOOOOSE的创作更加直接与自由。他的音乐融合了氛围音乐、合成器音乐和部分智能舞曲(IDM)的节拍,经常呈现出一种不同风格冲突下的和谐感。自2012年至今,已在德国、瑞士、丹麦、芬兰、 挪威、爱沙尼亚、法国、美国等地举行过多场成功的演出,其中包括著名的柏林 Haus der Kulturen der Welt、巴黎 Cite De La Musique和奥斯丁SXSW音乐节。GOOOOOSE更像是韩涵的个人实验室、游乐场甚至自省空间。在他的音乐里,数字程序与硬件合成器的边界被打破,人与机器的联系得以重构;他用电子脉冲构筑极简节拍,以脱离年代参照系的氛围段落描绘遥远而浪漫的科幻空间。

2017年,韩涵以GOOOOOSE 的名义参与了更多跨界合作计划,其中包括与艺术家张鼎的作品“漩涡” 合作的特别演出(上海香格纳画廊),为艺术家Andrej Boleslavsky的VR作品制作音乐(CAC上海新时线媒体艺术中心),以及为服装设计师张达(没边 Boundless) 和王浩铭(WHM/ZUCZUG)的2018春季秀制作整场音乐。同年,于大福唱片发表了第一张全长专辑 《THEY》,获得日本Music Magazine推荐。2018年1月,受邀参加柏林CTM音乐节, 并将在北京大福唱片、上海的SVBKVLT、伦敦/香港的NLS Records以及比利时的Ante-Rasa 发表数张新作品。2018年9月影像装置作品“THEY 2.0” 在北京歌德学院(798)参加名为“边界 共振”的展览。

 AVA ROCHA 

Ava Rocha is a Brazilian singer, songwriter and filmmaker. Daughter of two powerhouse filmmakers in Brazil, cinema has been in the Rio-born singer’s blood since she was a child. A leading figure in Brazil’s post-Tropicalia movement, along with her husband, Negro Leo, whom she often creates music with, she’s been turning the meaning of Brazilian pop on its head. Expanding on the foundation of the movement – an aim at universalizing and modernizing the language of Brazilian pop music, incorporating elements from world youth music scenes, such as Afro, Amazonian, Asian, Middle Eastern, and Latin American music, with high doses of experimentalism, all colliding and fusing together with rock n’ roll, funk, soul and Bossa-Nova vibes, the result is something challenging, something to embrace and something wholly original. A true creator of avant-garde art that never excludes the listener but instead introduces them to a completely new ocean of possibilities.

Ava Rocha是一名来自的巴西歌手、词曲作者和电影制片人。作为巴西两位著名电影制片人的女儿,电影艺术的天赋从小就流淌于这位里约出生的歌手血液中。作为巴西“后热带运动“的领军人物,AVA与她的丈夫同时也是音乐创作伙伴Negro Leo,一同致力于转变巴西流行音乐的意义。为了扩大这场文化运动的基础,普及和现代化巴西流行音乐语言,Ava的音乐融合了世界音乐的元素,比如非洲和亚马逊丛林中的节拍,混合摇滚乐、迷幻音乐和电吉他元素,不断实现了音乐上的超越。她是纯正前卫艺术的创造者,但不会将听众排除在外,而是将他们引入一个充满全新可能性的的音乐海洋中。

 NEGRO LEO 

“Negro Leo is part of a new experimental-music scene in Rio de Janeiro, associated over the last five years with the label Quintavant and the club Audio Rebel. Animated, charismatic, kind of wizardly with his rhythmic shouting of dream-state symbolic lyrics and his rough musicianship, Negro Leo dares you to demystify his method. They contain funk and free jazz and noise; they’ve got something to do with the 1960s Tropicalismo movement in Brazil, something to do with Arto Lindsay and New York’s brief late-’70s No Wave movement.”

——《The New York Times》

 Negro Leo 是里约热内卢新兴实验音乐场景中的重要一员,在过去的五年中,他与厂牌Quintavant、俱乐部Audio Rebel密切合作。Leo充满韵律且象征意味强烈的歌词,深厚的音乐才能,他的音乐如同巫术般富有魅力。在他的神奇配方中包含了funk与自由爵士、巴西六十年代“热带运动主义“、70年代无浪潮运动还有Arto Lindsay,似乎都能在其中找到身影.”

——《纽约时报》

解离的真实、绝对纯洁

 MIRRORS  解离的真实 

 With a sound that crosses psychedelic, post rock, experimental music, and bone-crushing noise rock, Mirrors have been making waves since 2016. Digging into exploring self-being and energy, the trio is like the triangular prism reflection. Three members give each other multiple reflection to get into the psychedelic dream made of virtuality and reality.

解离的真实(Mirrors)是阿鸣(吉他)大白(贝斯)Daniel(鼓)组成的三角能量体,通过自身的多重镜面反射,遁入虚像与实像交错的迷幻梦境。

 Absolute Purity  绝对纯洁 

Bound in contrast and contradictions, Absolute Purity pairs fierce desperation against melancholy and innocence. The band was formed in December 2016 by singer Wen Jun (ex-Guai Li), guitarist Tang Ting, drummer Zhang Yun and bassist Dami, each bringing their own musical direction. Drawing on experimental, post-punk, electronic music and psychedelia, their sound spans the aggressive, melodic and pure, going between the everyday mundane and unhinged madness.

绝对纯洁,矛盾的混合着激烈极端、不顾一切和纯真、伤感的气息。2016年12月,原怪力乐队主唱文隽找到吉他手汤庭、鼓手张云、贝斯手大米,组成乐队。带着对音乐的不同理解开始进行。音乐中也有暴力也有纯情也有日常也有癫狂,通过实验、post-punk、迷幻、电子、旋律、等元素来传达。
